Voice Bill Pay Through Alexa

Did you know that Alexa can pay your bills? Unfortunately, she’ll still be using your money to do it, but the ease of issuing a command and striking that task off your to-do list is a great convenience. Naturally, some people may be hesitant to give that level of authority to Alexa or allow her to access their bank accounts. However, at Blackhawk Bank, we think voice bill pay is a great idea and that this functionality has plenty to offer you. Here are reasons you should give Alexa Pay a try.

Works on a Whim

There are a lot of reasons people choose not to automate their bill payments. One good reason is the potential for an overdraft. However, by not automating your bills, you may forget to pay them. What’s worse is that you often remember while sitting on the couch, making dinner, or when you just walked through the door. However, you were probably too busy or tired to go through the motions of manually making the payment. Now, all you have to do is ask Alexa to do it. No more late bills because of procrastinating when you do remember.

Saves Time

Shouting out a command to Alexa and verifying the details only takes a few seconds. There’s no need to go hunting for your smartphone between the sofa seats or booting up the computer to get the job done. Just tell her what to do! That saves valuable time you could spend working on your report, studying for a test, or spending uninterrupted time with the family.

It’s Super Cool

C’mon, admit it. The idea of having a smart house has probably intrigued you since you were a kid. You secretly do like the idea of just issuing a command and having a task completed. You may already tell Alexa to turn on the lights, lock the front door, play music, or tell you a joke. It’s pretty awesome having your own personal assistant. Bill pay is just one new skill to add to the list.

Technology has helped to make our lives easier by completing tasks on our behalf. This saves us time and money. While Alexa Pay is still fairly new when it comes to banking, it’s nonetheless convenient. Sign up anytime and rest assured, Blackhawk Bank does not charge additional fees for this service. But, make sure to check with your internet data service provider for any costs that may be associated with their service.
